    Dear Lamborghini Community,

    I browsed your beautiful forum and tried to find the answer to my question with the help of the Search-function, but I must admit I need your help.

    A very dear friend of mine here in The Netherlands recently purchased the dream car of his live.

    I am sort of his dedicated detailer and now we are making plans for detailing his car to perfection and protecting it with a ceramic coating.

    Prior to that work I studied the car and noticed the missing paint on the decals on the two pictures below.

    Does anyone know how to detach these decals, so we can restore the paint, before putting them back on the car? Are these decals mounted with pins or are they sort of glued to the metalwork?

    I hope someone can help me with this.

    Sincere,
    Robert-Jan

    Pretty car. Yes they are mounted with pins. You can remove them by gently pulling. Try using a bondo (plastic body filler ) spreader & work it in various places. The pins are made of plastic & the emblem is brass.
